What Hillary had to say about our President
President Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are turning into quite the mutual admiration society.
Just a few months after Obama sat with Clinton for a joint interview on CBS' 60 Minutes, Clinton has penned a tribute to Obama in the pages of Time magazine.
Obama is "a leader who delivers," writes the former secretary of State in Time's annual issue on the world's 100 most influential people.
Here is Clinton's brief essay on Obama:
"Crowds jammed the streets of Rangoon. Children waved American flags. Parents craned to see something long thought impossible: the President of the United States had come to Burma with a message of hope, freedom and opportunity. This was American leadership at its best.
"When Barack Obama was first elected, the world saw the realization of the American Dream. Today, they see a leader who delivers -- whether it's ending the war in Iraq, imposing crippling sanctions on
Iran or reasserting our role as a Pacific power and building a world with more partners and fewer enemies. At home, the economy is growing, unemployment is falling, and home prices are rising.
"Now, President Obama is working to create broader prosperity at home and become more competitive abroad by investing in our people, modernizing our infrastructure, building a new energy future and managing our long-term fiscal challenges. That's the course for a better future."
